“They are getting the band back together!” are words that every music fan loves to hear about musicians that hold a prominent spot in their music library. This Saturday night, as the packed crowd showed, there are many music fans that were pleased to hear this about Rua 6. On this night at Eclipse di Luna five musicians with different nationalities and mixed musical backgrounds hit the stage together as Rua 6 for the first time since August. Rua 6 is: Andre Rievers, vocalist and acoustic guitar; Vlamir Abbud, bass guitar; and, Rafael Pereira, drums, all from São Paulo, Brazil; Juan Bonini, percussion, from Panama and Atlanta native, Cooper Tisdale on guitar. This band once again brought Samba, Rumba Flamenca, Samba-reggae, Bossa Nova and Funk to keep the crowd of fans dancing all night.

Special thanks to Rafael Perira for securing a table for the Libro Musica team and a few guests. If you feel like you recognized Rafael Pereira, better known as Rafa, you probably do recognize him. He has performed at the Grammy Awards, Saturday Night Live, and Late Night with David Letterman, and is currently touring with Janelle Monáe. One of my favorite events that had Rafa on the drums was my 50th birthday Celebration earlier this year at the The Lyric Studio Theatre in the Square in Marietta.
